Guns you regret getting rid of.

This was one of many that got away. I instantly regretted trading this. It went to my best friend. He takes very good care of his guns. I told him the only condition is that if he ever decides to sell it i get first pick.

Smith and Wesson 645

Back in the early eighties, I sold a Browning T-Bolt 22 cal., Browning Auto, 12 gauge( both Belgian made) and a Remington 541-S 22 cal. All for $1000.00 to get settlement money for our first home.

Can't say I regret selling or trading any of the guns I have. Each one wasn't serving a purpose in my collection so I got rid of them to get something I did want.

Scorpion8 is an unknown quantity at this point
Ruger P-89TH. Very accurate gun, but I was "moving on" to others. Should have kept it.

The one gun I regret getting rid of was my very first gun: A used S&W blued Chief's Special snubbie. I learned to shoot (very accurately) with that gun. I very foolishly traded it for a cute snubbie 6 shot with built in laser. I never learned to like that new one, and even now, 20 years later, wish I had never parted with "my first love."

Hard to believe, but a Dan Wesson .357 (5") and a S&W stainless J frame mod 63 .22 rimfire . I kick myself often for the little Smith it had adjustable sights and shot like a dream !!
